The existing plan is to have the pipeline operational by the end of 2016. The “Bakken Pipeline”—as it is already being named—would have the capacity to transfer 320,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

Canada’s Enbridge is starting talks with the authorities in Alaska for the construction of a proposed $8 billion natural gas pipeline that could become a reality if plans for a much larger pipeline fall through. The larger pipeline — a $65 billion project by TransCanada Corp, Exxon Mobil, BP and Conoco Phillips — also includes an LNG plant for exports from Alaska. The smaller Enbridge pipeline would be 722 miles long and would carry natural gas from the North Slope to Fairbanks and other southern Alaskan communities. If approved, Enbridge is eyeing 2020 for operational launch.
